Illustrator & PRINT DESIGNER

Email -

Ever since I was little, I've enjoyed making up stories and drawing in nature, playing in the potted plants in my living room or making bamboo teepees out in the garden. Comics became one of my favorite means of storytelling in late elementary school, combining my pictures and stories in one place. I taught myself to sew when I was in high school, and I've made a lot of my own clothes to fill a void of the kinds of whimsical storybook things I wanted. 

Now, I work in textiles because I love getting hands-on with different textures and materials, but most of my work still involves drawing and painting, and working with color on the computer. My free time is filled with writing, reading, and any kinds of creative endeavors that bring the soft and gentle woodland world in my head to life. 

I love working on new creative projects and lending a hand on endeavors I believe in. I've worked with Anthropologie on apparel print & pattern, a cute sock company on their inaugural line, and currently, the Martha Stewart Collection with their Whim bedding collection. I get really excited to collaborate with small independent studios and designers of all types in everything from surface design and textiles to books and illustration. Send me an email if you're interested in working together.
